Your Chance to Influence UK Defense Policy

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by jumpinjarhead, Sep 24, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This appeared on the Kings College Dept of War Studies blog today and invites input as to what UK's defense policy should be. I am puzzled as to why a similar invitation from MOD did not go to ARRSE but there it is. Here is your opportunity to weigh in ARRSErs!

     
  2. OK, first a quick gut test, do the following statements sound true or false:

    The UK will never fight another war abroad (after Afghanistan)

    The UK will never fight in another European war.

    The UK will never need large numbers of soldiers to deal with natural disasters or civil disorder in the UK itself.
     
  3. What ''Defence Policy?''
     
  4. Do what the yanks do?
     
  5. With our current masters, I would strongly discourage that.
     
  6. Write out one hundred times:

    DEFENCE.

    When you have finished report to my study! :D
     
  7. Try 'Do what the yanks say'.

    In reality, the only way to influence UK defence policy is to get elected to the Presidency.
     
  8. Do you need the address to ACORN?
